You think he memorizes his stories?

All of them are made up right on the spot

Really, he takes a seed of truth and plants it in his imagination

Now his voice waters that seed and out of that grows amazing

She was so hungry.  It had been way too long

Now she had lots of opportunities to do something about it

And she sampled a few of the wares offered to her, but none had hit the spot

Candy for the eye almost always left her unsatisfied

Knowing all that, she was still willing to give him a try.  She was in the mood for at least a…

Search (an acrostic poem)

So many places he could be hiding

Especially since he was such a small tike

And she made sure to count to one hundred out loud

Ready or not, here I come!

Her giggles gave away the fact that she never decided to…

Something about sitting down, eyes closed, not moving

The outside slows down and the inside opens up

Leave your very soul on the mat at the end to achieve your goal

Delivering the highest spot on that Olympian podium

Letting Go (an acrostic poem)

Little things matter, but you like to look at the big picture

Even if I told you I wanted the red one, you would get me the blue

The way you complete me leaves me shivering

That is you complete me like death completes life

I don’t know why I even opened the door to my heart to you in the first place

Now I want to evict you from my presence, but I keep giving you a stay from execution

Granting you another lease on my life

 

Got to learn from your mistakes and wash my hands of this mess

Out damned spot!  Out I say!
